Adorama Ships Swivi HD DSLR Universal Foldable Viewfinder II

Designed for use with DSLR cameras and essential for shooting video in daylight, the Flashpoint Swivi is a professional LCD Viewfinder loupe that provides a clear, magnified view of the camera LCD

Adorama, one of the world’s largest photography, imaging, video and electronics retailers, and a leading destination for iPhone photo specialty accessories, has begun selling the Flashpoint Swivi HD DSLR LCD Universal Foldable Viewfinder Version II with 3.0X Magnification (Flashpoint Swivi). Designed for use with DSLR cameras and essential for shooting video in daylight, the Flashpoint Swivi is a professional LCD Viewfinder loupe that provides a clear, magnified view of the camera LCD.

Viewfinders are designed to help shooters find the perfect focus and exposure. With the Flashpoint Swivi, users can magnify the camera’s image, getting a much clearer view of the frame, making it easier to confirm that the subject is in focus. The Flashpoint Swivi provides two viewing modes: Magnification Mode, which provides a 3x view of the LCD via a focusable lens, and Standard Mode, accessible by simply flipping up the eyepiece, which hoods the direct view of the LCD from sunlight. The Swivi Viewfinder also features a comfortable rubber eyecup, which can be easily rotated to suit left or right eye shooting.

Flashpoint Swivi Key Features

  • Two framing modes, 3x Magnification and Standard (1:1), can take pictures quickly
  • Easy to install and remove with adjustable frame and mounting plate; swivel screen friendly
  • Supports 3" LCD with ratio 4:3, compatible for LCD with ratio 3:2; eye-shutter ready
  • 3x optical magnification lets shooters observe details more clearly
  • Well-sealed hood blocks out the light while magnifying the frame for accurate color and focusing
  • Mounting plate makes it easy to install and remove; the eyepiece shutter also ensures the safety of LCD in sunlight

The Swivi viewfinder loupe attaches to the camera using a mounting plate and fits on most DSLR cameras with a 3" LCD. Its brackets are specifically designed to adjust to fit a variety of different cameras.
